Living rooms are one of the easiest places to add upholstered accent chairs. In this example, use accent chairs to add more seating. Pick a matching pair and place a cute end table in between.

Another way to add them in the living room is by picking a contrasting color from your sofas like here. Top them off with another end table in between or by a chair. And always add a pretty pillow for an extra luxurious layered look.

In this living room example. Place the accent chairs side by side and put the end table on one end for an asymmetrical look.

Go for a big contrast by picking an opposite shade of upholstery from walls like this black and cream combo. Add in an area rug for a dose of pattern.
